5G Insider Rating: Samsung Galaxy A71 5G 5 stars

Quick Overview

One of the latest offerings in 5G devices is OnePlus 8. It’s important to note that while this device will be compatible with 5G networks it will also depend on which provider will allow it to connect to its 5G network. We’ll go over the providers allowing connectivity a bit later, however, it’s not to say that you can’t use this phone on others with 4 LTE connections.


As complicated as that may seem on the surface we’re here for the good stuff, lighting-fast, future-focused, next generation-defining 5G and luckily, this phone delivers. It’s all about function and design and we feel that’s something you’ll see right away. An impressive 48 MP triple-camera to capture your favorite memories, presented on a 6.55″ Fluid Display with a 90 Hz refresh rate, processed through a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 865 processor are great places to start. Its Warp Charge 30T can charge your device with incredible speed and with a battery capacity of 4,300 mAh, your OnePlus 8 5G can stay charged morning, noon, and night. Which is a great thing because it also boasts a 48 MP Triple Camera system, 116° ultra-wide-angle camera, and plenty of camera settings including Smart Pet Capture, you can capture your favorite brunch plate, an afternoon run with your four-legged friend, and a night out bowling all in one charge.
